I’m 20 years old & Drugs have always fascinated me & I love talking about my history with drugs. I started using drugs at the young age of 10 years old by smoking weed. I smoked weed till the 7th grade, when I found my grandma’s painkillers. At the time I didn’t know what the pills were, but I took one of the pills (10mg Oxycotin) & I fell in love with the euphoric warmth that opioids have. I started taking them daily first, one pill a day building a tolerance & eventually having a 70-100mg daily habit which increased more thru 8th grade. Once I got to high school I stopped taking the pills because I didn’t have the funds to fuel my habit. My pill man introduced me to heroin; cheaper than pills, stronger than pills. He gave me a sample of black tar heroin dissolved in water. He told me to snort the water, so I tipped the cap back, waited a couple minutes thinking this was a waste of my time until it hit me. The rush & the euphoria were intense & I fell in love with heroin & never been happier. I quickly developed a tolerance along with 2-3 gram daily habit. By the time i was I my sophomore year I had started smoking it and soon found meth to not be such a bad thing at all. I used meth to keep me from nodding in class & in front of family plus the combo was such a great experience I was in pure nirvana! Of course smoking can only get you so high until it’s not even working and you’re wasting product, that’s when I started to shoot up both heroin/meth at the end of my junior year. Fast forward to May 2017, I’m in the hospital trying to fight a IV drug use related infection (MRSA) as well as the withdrawals. Once I was released, I didn’t touch anything for a month or two until just recently when I started smoking BTH again, but only ever so often not like how I was before.
